Yes raise the concern.
We have to be outside , patrolling with hi vis jackets and are not allowed drinks outside.
In this weather children must have coats on.
They can't go on our wooden climbing equipment at the moment , either, as it becomes slippery in cold damp weather.
There are usually 3 of us on duty , for all the different areas.

It does sound like a safeguarding issue to me.

It is not a safeguarding issue. It is a safety issue. The Head and the Governors are responsible for Health and Safety and such issues should be brought to their attention. Any serious accident should be investigated and, given the history of accidents, you should bring your concerns to the Head. The School must have a Health and Safety policy and do a check every year that highlights any health and safety issues. These are then put into a plan for improvement. This is urgent. Not really the coat wearing but how the equipment is supervised. I would voice your concerns to the Head and if needs be, to the of Governors.
