Here is my best explanation:

'referee should get a change of scene' is the definition.

I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'judge sports' is the subsidiary indication.

'judge' becomes 'j'.

'sports' becomes 'ump' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

'j'+'ump'='jump'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for jump that I've seen before include "Make abrupt movement - start", "Start", "Leap (high, long or triple)", "Suddenly rise", "Sudden large increase", "Hurdle", "Suddenly increase", "Leap, bound", "Attack" and "Vault, bound".)
