You should approach the school and talk to them. I believe that the punishment is harsh but that is my opinion based on what you have told me.
Noone should have been suspended the boys involved should have been told to apologise to each other and the school should have had them supervised.
It appears that fact that there was no teacher keeping an eye on the boys, and they were playing on a structure where they were pulling each other off is thwart with danger.
Had your son hit his head harder we may not be talking about this but something far worse.
Make an appointment with the school and see them.
You have to go in and no take the stance that your son has been unfairly treated but that the school has overreacted and why were they not being supervised as the injuries could have been worse.
