Something else from the CAF:
L'allocation de rentree scolare (Ars) is Euro272.50 as a one off payment each year for each child to help with the return to school expenses. When you are "in the French system".
This is for all kids 6 to 16 years (or 18 yrs if you prove they are still in full time education) it's paid automatically at the end of August.
This is a means tested payment. You have to earn less than Euro21,991 net for 1 child, Euro27,066 for 2 kids and Euro32,141 for three kids. Euro5,075 per child after.
