Description The objective of this paper is outlining those changes and incentives which the current curricular reform presents - those which should benefit the pupil voice. The paper also presents the results of a study carried out at a primary school situated in the city of Brno. In an interview, the principal and teachers were asked to comment on how they feel the new conditions have influenced their pedagogical work and what role the pupil voice should have in it. The aim of the study is mainly to investigate how respondents perceive the conditions and the room for pupil autonomy and their active involvement to processes of teaching and learning. Are schools interested in involving pupils to these processes? Are schools prepared to listen to the pupil voice and to work with it?
