Meet the characters

Mr Broadbean

Headteacher at Five-a-Dale Primary School, kindly Mr Broadbean is patient with all his pupils – even the Dodgitz!

With a snowy moustache and eyebrows, Mr Broadbean may look like one of the village’s more senior characters, but he’s young at heart and is a surprisingly modern teacher. He looks forward to school holidays, when he can travel to far-flung places.
