    Why did you miss school? If it wasn't an illegal thing that you were doing then just tell the truth about why, and deal with the telling off and punishment your school might give.

    If it was an illegal thing I still urge you to tell the truth

    It depends on why you skipped school and if it’s a specific reason then you should talk to your school counsellor or school nurse if you don’t want to tell your parents I mean I know a lot of people who have skipped class they have detentions but that’s about it cause they have spoken to someone they trust ie. tutor or year tutor

    Don't skip school too much. If you miss too much school your parents can get a fine. If they don't pay that, they go to prison. Don't mean to scare you - it was only a week. Just saying if you do this regularly then it will happen

    Best thing is to just tell the truth before it gets any worse. The police are already involved. I mean we've all skipped a bit of school in our lives, okay maybe not a whole day maybe just a lesson or 2, but the point is even If you've got something to hide like you were doing something that day you don't want your mum to find out just tell the truth. You can't run away from something like this and you can't lie your way out of it. The school/police might even get child protection services and social services involved in this matter and they might even blame your mum in extreme circumstances. But it could happen. So it's best just to stay on the safe side, admit you were foolish and wrong to skip an important part of your learning and say you're sorry and that it won't happen again. You probably still might get a punishment but it most likely won't be as serious as it would be if you lie.

    Hope this helps and Good luck!
