Based on a sample of $1.31$ billion $J/\psi$ events collected with the BESIII detector, we report the study of the doubly radiative decay $\eta^\prime\to \gamma\gamma\pi^0$ for the first time, where the $\eta^\prime$ meson is produced via the $J/\psi\to \gamma\eta^\prime$ decay. The branching fraction of $\eta^\prime\to \gamma\gamma\pi^0$ inclusive decay is measured to be ${\cal B}(\eta^\prime\to \gamma\gamma\pi^0)_{\text{Incl.}}$ = $(3.20\pm0.07\mbox{(stat)}\pm0.23\mbox{(sys)})\times 10^{-3}$,

In addition, the $M^2_{\gamma\gamma}$-dependent partial widths of the inclusive decay are also presented.
