Value for term 4 is:  Justice ‘Be fair and do what is right’ When thinking about ‘justice’, some people may first think about giving wrongdoers the punishment they deserve. ‘Justice’ evokes ideas of ‘just deserts’, ’the punishment fitting the crime’, ‘an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth’. However, that would be a one-sided picture of justice. Justice also means giving all people – particularly the poor and oppressed – what it is right and fair for them to have: life, health, freedom and dignity. It is about acting out of a concern for what is right and seeing right prevailing. It is about social justice, especially for those who suffer most and are least able to protect themselves.
