Off sick with stress and moving schools

Going to be really brief here as details might out us. Our child is currently signed off sick by GP with stress and anxiety. Issues have been going on for over a year but intensified over the last 6 months. School have appeared supportive but I suspect haven't actually done much.

We are booked to do transition days to a new school starting from next Friday. Our child understandably can't face returning to his existing school. On top of everything we really don't want to have to deal with the stress of an EWO compaining about absence but don't know how to handle it. The GP didn't specify a number of days off so shall we just keep him off for the next week?

Any ideas on how to move forward with minimum stress for everyone gratefully received!
