I assume you are using oracle report builder. This is how you can achieve this:

1)Design your report layout.
2)Just below the "page_skip" column, create a small object (like a line) within the same repeating frame.
3)Set "page break before" property for this object
4)Create format trigger on this object like:
function B_1FormatTrigger return boolean is
begin
  if :page_skip = 'Y' Then
    return (TRUE);
  else
    return false;
  end if;
end;

You can set the color of the object to white to prevent it from being printed.
