An Evaluation of the Physical Education and Sport Plan for Schools and Colleges in Derbyshire 2012-2015

The landscape for PE, sport and physical activity is changing, where national and local priorities are evolving; and issues such as obesity and wellbeing are to the fore.

As a result, Derbyshire Sport commissioned Engaging Communities Staffordshire, an independent social research and engagement community interest company, to undertake an evaluation of the Plan using a multi-methodological approach engaging pupils, staff and stakeholders in both qualitative and quantitative research.

Take a look below at the key findings in the evaluation report and executive summary.

Derbyshire Citizens Panel

The Derbyshire Citizens Panel surveys approximately 3,000 people per year on topics such as their own participation in physical activity or organised sport.

Economic Impact of Sport

All counties in England can now demonstrate how sport benefits their economy using our new Economic value of sport – local model.

The model produces area based (local authority, county sport partnership and local enterprise partnership) estimates on sports' contribution to the local economy in the form of business output (GVA) and jobs plus wider benefits like health.

Disability Insight

This insight have been taken from the 'Projecting Older People Population Information System' for 66+ age group (POPPI) and the Projecting Adult Needs and Service Information for the 18-64 year olds age group (PANSI).

Both sites calculate their population figures from the Office for National Statistics subnational population projections. The latest of these projections were published in May 2014. Each impairment group's prevalence rates are based on various sources including RNIB, Educational studies and reports, General Household Study 2007, Health Survey for England 2006.

Data has been presented at number per 10,000– This is to illustrate the size of the impairment groups within Derbyshire's local areas.

Indices of Multiple Deprivation

The English indices of deprivation measure relative deprivation in small areas in England called lower-layer super output areas. The index of multiple deprivation is the most widely used of these indices. It is a combined measure based on a total of 37 separate indicators, each of which reflects a different aspect of deprivation experienced by individuals living in an area.

The attached map of Derbyshire shows where deprivation is the most extensive.

The latest Active Lives survey data is summarised in the below. This summary shows the full year data for 2015/16, 2016/17 and some data for 2017/18. The half year data helps us to understand some trends but we can't do full comparisons until we have a third full year data set.

Derbyshire Customer Segmentation

Derbyshire County Council have produced and manage a customer segmentation model which helps us understand more about the people who live in Derbyshire. The segmentation excludes the city of Derby but is a useful tool to look at the people who live in our communities.

Active Lives - Children and Young People

Sport England have just released the first year of data for the Active Lives Survey: Children and Young People.

The Active Lives Survey: Children and Young People provides a world-leading approach to gathering data on how children engage with sport and physical activity.

Designed by Sport England, the Department for Education (DfE), the Department for Health (DfH), and the Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport (DCMS), its purpose is to gain a detailed insight into the current physical activity habits of the nation's children and young people (5 to 16).

For more information on the survey, please click here.

The report is based on responses from more than 130,000 children aged 5-16 in England during the academic year September 2017-July 2018.
