Hi James, the soil temps are still cold so seeds sown direct may struggle, it's worth covering with fleece to help warm the soil. I would wait another week or so to see if any of your seeds appear, if not then resow.
It's way too early to plant courgettes outside, I would resow indoors and then plant out at the beginning of June after hardening off.
Lots of seed packets give very ' optimistic' sowing times, always bear in mind the weather conditions in your area and last frost dates.
The good news is that you have plenty of time and once the weather warms veg will shoot ahead.
