    I'm in year 13 and my school has this rule that if you're gonna be absent than you have to email your form tutor before 8:30. Does that mean they won't contact your parents?

    Yeah, as long as you email them and your teachers explaining why you're not in before 8:30 then they'll accept that. However, at my school the people who regularly had a "migraine" or an "appointment" at the same time every week had their parents called to confirm their reason.

    If you're doing this to skive out of a lesson, for one just don't do it, but if you really have to, don't make it a regular thing because they will catch on.

    But for a one-off genuine reason of absence then no they won't call your parents. But the way you're phrasing this makes it seem like you're going to be doing something you don't want your parents knowing about, which is pretty suspicious. Whatever it is, I hoe it isn't illegal or dangerous.

    They’ll contact the cops instead. Expect a knock on the door soon.

    The only reason I don't want to go school is because I have no lessons today so it would be a waste of time. I'll only do it today. I already emailed my form tutor.

    Your school would probably pick up on that fact you've conveniently called in sick on a day you have study periods, but tbh it depends on how strict your school is.

    I have one day that I have no lessons, and even if I have homework, I complete it in the first lesson or in the first 2 lessons, and then spend the rest of the day bored

    I'm assuming you have 5-6 hours of lesson time a day, so make sure you do that amount of work at home.

    Yeah I'll do some homework and past papers. My form tutor emailed me back and my absent has been authorised.
