Let $\calO(x)$ denote the orbit of $x\in X$ under the action of the group $P$.

Let $X^P=\{x_1, x_2, \dots, x_m\}$.
The orbits of an element in $X^p$ under the action of $P$ is the element itself, that is, $\calO(x_i)=\{x_i\}$ for $i=1,\dots, m$. Let $x_{m+1}, x_{m+2},\dots, x_n$ be representatives of other orbits of $X$.

Then we have the decomposition of the set $X$ into a disjoint union of orbits
\[X=\calO(x_1)\sqcup \cdots \sqcup \calO(x_m)\sqcup \calO(x_{m+1})\sqcup \cdots \sqcup \calO(x_n).\]

For $j=m+1, \dots, n$, the orbit-stabilizer theorem gives
\[|\calO(x_j)|=[P:\Stab_P(x_j)]=p^{\alpha_j}\]
for some positive integer $\alpha_j$. Here $\alpha_j \neq 0$ otherwise $x_j \in X^P$.

Therefore we have
\begin{align*}
|X|&=\sum_{i=1}^m|\calO(x_i)|+\sum_{j=m+1}^n|\calO(x_j)|\\
&=\sum_{i=1}^m 1 +\sum_{j=m+1}^n p^{\alpha_j}\\
&=|X^P|+\sum_{j=m+1}^n p^{\alpha_j}\\
&\equiv |X^P| \pmod{p}.
\end{align*}
This completes the proof.
