child won't poo

My nearly 4 yr old boy has always insisted on pooing in a nappy standing up. Not ideal for obvious reasons... Recently  I convinced him to poo with a nappy on while sitting on the potty. He obliged for a week. But now he refuses to poo at all, occasionally leaking a little in his undies.  His appetite has been affected. I'm very frustrated and worried as he starts school next month. It isn't a consistency problem, he eats raisins and fruit and I give him lacson daily.

Have him sit on the potty on  a schedule, and accompany this with use of reward when he is successful actually using the potty
