For many years Irongate School has had a tree in our school logo. The tree represents the Irongate  School Learners in the different stages of their development. Our School Whānau have developed a  learning journey that gives meaning and mauri to the learning environment. 

Our spaces are collaborative with tamariki working together and sharing spaces. Tamariki are in whānau rōpu with a kaiako and learning coach for indivdual and small group teaching and learning.
