Default Winter veg for school project

My son's school is looking for vegetable seeds which can be sown after
the Xmas hols and produce something harvestable, or nearly edible, by
the end of April. Seeds could be started off on classroom windowsill
(no greenhouse or cloche to hand) and then planted outdoors; or any
seeds which can be put straight into their outdoor veg plot... Any
advice appreciated.

Lettuce (especially the red varieties) and Mustard & Cress spring to mind.
You do plant onion seeds early but they won't be cropping before next
summer.

leafy green things such as chard, bok choi and lettuce all seem to do
well. February sown carrots might work, too. Possibly beetroots, they
don't seem to take too long, although not sure how early you can plant.
